A lion roars on Broadway in box office haul

It was feast or famine at the Broadway box office as 2022 wound down, with eye-popping revenue for popular shows.

“The Lion King” made history with the biggest haul ever, an astonishing $4,315,000 over nine performances.

Twenty-one of the 33 shows available broke the $1 million mark for the week ending Sunday, though early closing notices were posted for a number of shows.
